Jay with John & Annie Glenn at Warm Springs

Jay Bryant; c. 1963; Warm Springs, Georgia

I think the year was 1963. John Glenn was at Warm Springs after his orbit of Earth. I was the only polio patient around in the PT room, so they took pictures with me. I had no idea who John Glenn was, I was too young. I was far more impressed with Annie. She was extremely nice and caring. I met them again many years later when he was running for president, and he autographed the picture. Again, however, Annie had my full attention. What a gracious lady.
